Refund Schedules

What percentage refund are you going to get if you drop a course? It's important that you check the refund schedule that applies to your course.


Before dropping a course, check with the Financial Aid office so they can review your financial aid eligibility. They will determine what, if any, changes will need to be made if you make changes to your registration.

Global Studies and study abroad courses (including on-campus courses with an embedded program abroad) have a specific cancelation and refund schedule. For further information, contact the Office of Global Studies.
